Unfortunately, insurance companies will do whatever they can to keep you from receiving the compensation you are owed, so it is in your best interest to seek professional legal guidance from our Santa Ana workers’ compensation lawyer.
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
According to the California Workers’ Compensation Act, employers are required to provide medical treatment and other workers’ compensation benefits to employees who sustain work-related injuries.
Work-related injuries can include those caused by:
- One event or accident
- Repeated/prolonged exposures
Examples of work-related injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome brought on by extensive computer use or severe back strain brought on by lifting heavy objects on a daily basis. Workers’ compensation is designed to protect workers who become ill or injured on the job.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Employers in California are required to have workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance will provide benefits to workers that were injured on the job.
Below are the benefits available to qualified individuals:
- Medical care: Any visits with your doctor, surgeries, physical therapy, acupuncture, tests, medicines, and medical travel expenses are covered under workers’ compensation. Medical travel expenses should be kept track of using the Medical Mileage Expense form.
- Temporary disability: If you are placed on temporary disability after sustaining a work-related injury, you are entitled to compensation for your lost wages.
- Permanent disability: If your work-related injury causes a permanent loss of function, you will be placed on permanent disability and entitled to compensation for your lost wages.
- Supplemental job displacement: If you have to retrain, switch job positions, alter your previous work duties, or are unable to return to your previous position due to a work-related injury or illness, you are entitled to supplemental job displacement benefits.
- Death: The families of workers who were killed on the job are entitled to death benefits that include things like coverage of burial and funeral expenses as well as payments to their spouses, children, or other dependents.
